Merchant & Gould is pleased to announce the promotion of Luciano A. Ricondo to partner in its New York office, effective Jan. 1, 2022.
Luciano helps his clients to strategically grow their patent portfolios and obtain comprehensive intellectual property protection for new products and businesses. He drafts and prosecutes domestic and foreign patent applications in the mechanical, electrical, computer, and software-related arts. Luciano also prepares and prosecutes domestic and foreign industrial designs. While his practice expands across multiple industries, Luciano’s practice primarily focuses on medical devices and software including healthcare communications connecting healthcare professionals with patients. In addition to patent prosecution, he provides litigation support in a variety of areas, including drafting opinion letters regarding patentability, freedom to operate, and patent infringement.
“We are excited to expand our leadership and promote Luciano, who exemplifies the professionalism and experience that help our firm to grow and be successful, especially when our clients need us most,” said Peter Gergely, managing partner of Merchant & Gould’s New York office. “His promotion brings greater depth to our Mechanical, Electrical and Software Practice Groups in some of the most inventive industries in New York and across the country.”
